4 years ago I promised that, if elected, I would fight tirelessly to make schools more accountable to families to speak fearlessly for schools to return to the foundational academics that inform & edify our children’s essential liberties. 
I have more than kept my promises, but so much more must still be done. 

Utah’s children and families deserve…

freedom to decide their own futures

Schools are increasingly—and alarmingly—partnering with big business  to plan out students’ futures based on the workforce needs of today. As early as elementary school, students feel the pressure to begin planning their adult futures, instead of experiencing the joy of just being kids who learn to love learning for its own sake. I have voted time and time against policies & programs that push kids into workforce pipelines that rob them of the freedom to obtain a well-rounded education that will help them to pursue any future they hope for and dream about for themselves.

freedom to think their own thoughts

Freedom of conscience and religious belief are at the heart of our nation’s very founding, and at the soul of every person, young or old. Children do not check their consciences at the school door. Children need to know they are free to act on their sincerely-held internal sense of right and wrong without fear of punishment. I have fought for and defended student and parent conscience and religious belief protected by the U.S. and Utah constitutions, helping to author HB348, aka “The Rights of Conscience” bill, which became state law in 2023. Schools must respect a student’s and parent’s Constitutional right not to participate in any aspect of school that would violate their conscience or religious belief. 

freedom from indoctrination

The school system must stop pushing widely promoted but deeply flawed and discriminatory social, economic, racial, environmental, and sexual justice ideologies. Children deserve education, not indoctrination. I have written page after page protesting against schools using children to promote global, national, or local agendas; solve for real or manufactured societal problems; or lobby or agitate as activists for causes or social change inside or outside of school.  

freedom from divisive labels

It’s destructive and dehumanizing to create racial and ethnic divisions among children. The Supreme Court recently overturned years of bad law that allowed schools to racially discriminate in the name of non-discrimination. We must pull back on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion policies that reinforce negative stereotypes, encourage putting kids in boxes with labels that benefit only those who have built an entire industry on profiting from identity politics and programs. I will never stop fighting for every student to be free from divisive “identity” labels, and to be seen instead for the content of their character, and my voting record at the state board backs this up.


freedom to learn untethered from tech

By returning to a strong focus on time-tested, traditional methods & materials for teaching reading, writing, arithmetic, history, and science, our children will be prepared to think and act wisely based on objective self-evident truths without all the negative side effects associated with tech-based learning.

Children are healthier, happier, and better learners if they are not spending the majority of their time in front of screens. But when a child’s public education depends upon the child having to learn a learning management system in order to learn how to do math, or to use a Chromebook for a P. E. class, the system is doing that child a huge disservice. I have voted repeatedly against artificial tech-programs that only counterfeit & dumb-down real learning, and keep children from forming meaningful interpersonal relationships.

freedom from surveillance & Sick-making

So much of the learning that children are doing in school is being tracked, measured, and analyzed by corporations that have partnered with the schools to collect and profit off our children’s mindsets and behaviors. This endless data mining of students isn’t okay, and it constitutes a violation of their 4th Amendment rights. A child’s education should not be conditioned upon that child having to divulge or give the school unfettered access to his or her thoughts and feelings, or to submit to endless surveys and inappropriate psychoanalysis.

My stance has always been clear and I have informed parents repeatedly—schools have no business implementing intrusive Social Emotional learning practices, policies, and pedagogies, nor should they be providing universal mental health services that suggest that our children are patients instead of students.

My efforts to serve my constituents & safeguard faith, family, and freedom have been tireless

The public deserves a board member who will be a voice for securing children’s innocence, parents’ preeminence, and Constitutional rights, anywhere and everywhere, but especially in our local schools.

As a lifelong Republican, I’ve always stood for conservative, family-first principles. I’ve lobbied the state legislature & our national delegation for desperately needed protections for school children.

My work to safeguard faith, family, and freedom has taken me to the United Nations on several occasions, where I learned firsthand of the global agenda to radically transform education around the world through the  “research, policy, practice pipeline;” infiltrate local schools and minds with destructive ideologies; intentionally sexualize our children; and destroy freedom by promoting global and digital citizenship over national and state sovereignty.

Above all, my family is my greatest joy and proudest accomplishment.

My critical work as a board member

Fought to stop sexually explicit materials in schools by proposing a model policy that would have helped prevent porn in any form & spoke on behalf of my constituents to fight obscenity in Alpine School District

Spoke on behalf of my constituents against boys in girls’ bathrooms in Jordan School District & exposed changes to Title IX that weaponize gender identity in schools

Proposed important amendments to English, Science, and CTE standards that promoted factual accuracy, objective truth, and politics-free learning, and fought against efforts at the USBE to obstruct putting these changes forth in committee

Voted repeatedly against wasteful big-money contracts for edtech & SEL programs that collect  students’ data, promote premature workforce pipelines, and promote DEI ideologies, including motioning to successfully withdraw USBE support for the SHARP survey

Co-authored key legislation  securing religious belief & conscience in the classroom, HB348, which passed in 2023 with a super majority, allowing a student or a student’s parent to refrain from participating in any aspect of school that violates their conscience or religious belief

Championed local accountability by proposing a constitutional amendment to untie Utah schools from oppressive  federal mandates and regulations, and by voting against grants that increase government control at the expense of families & their children

Utahns unite around Natalie 

Natalie has not just served as a state board member, but as the state’s board member. Her willingness to speak boldly on the issues that concern parents and teachers has earned her the trust and support of thousands of Utahns from every corner of our family-friendly state.

Read just a few of the hundreds of expressions supporting Natalie

We need more board members to be like Natalie. We need them to stand up for the innocence of our children. Natalie is the only board member I can see who is putting our children before the agenda and striving to protect them by informing parents.

Ron & rachel

[Natalie] is a wonderful person and advocate for children. I will defend her till I die.

t. barson

[Natalie] is correct and should be applauded for courageously stating the obvious.

[Natalie] is an elected board member that many of us elected to represent us. She shares real experiences that Utahns have sent and reported to her because our district will not listen and take action when we report wrong doing in public schools.

Let Natalie do her work! Support her!

Natalie informs many thankful parents of what is happening in schools and coming down the pipeline from the Dept of Education.

k. taylor

I would like to voice my support for Natalie Cline. I know she has ruffled some feathers, but as a Utah parent and educator I strongly support her in her efforts to keep our children safe and to inform parents of some of the indecent materials that occasionally make it into our schools.

m. williams

[A]s a parent in Utah I am extremely pleased with the work of your board member named Natalie Cline. She is doing what parents need to know by showing true light on SEL, Critical Race Theory, and how teaching the very young about sex is grooming children.

She is a winner in the sight of all parents.

s. salmond

I STAND WITH NATALIE CLINE!!!

As a parent of 6 children I am very thankful that we have someone like NATALIE CLINE representing family values and parents!

C. Mattinson

Natalie Cline is the only one who is for STANDING for our children and grandchildren.

She is pretty much the only one I’ll continue to vote for and will put my 100% trust in who she gives her endorsement to.

R. Parks

Natalie… I wish you health, happiness, support and God’s blessings as you carry your banners of truth and justice.

We love what you are standing for.

Steve F.

I wanted to take a moment to speak in support of Ms. Natalie Cline. I appreciate her input and fight for conservative values and equal opportunities for all students within our schools. While she may not directly represent my district, she does represent many values and opinions that I hold near and dear and I am so thankful for that. I appreciate her willingness to speak for those of us who are under represented and truly hope that she continues to hold her position on the board.

L. Samuels

Kudos to Mrs. Cline for raising a warning voice and informing with facts, not simply attacking with emotion. She is a hero to countless Utah parents because of both her courage and integrity.

L. simper

Natalie is a woman of integrity who works hard to address the concerns of her constituents and protect children from the deleterious influences in schools. We need more USBE members like Natalie, who will stand up with courage for what is right.

R. Hansen

Natalie is a champion in standing up against this evil in our schools. I would encourage you to listen to her, to listen to parents all over the state standing against evil!

K. Richey

As an elected board member, Natalie has a moral obligation to advocate for the safety of these children and inform parents of programs, curriculum, policies etc. that she finds would be detrimental to their child’s development, ultimately putting them in harm’s way.

We parents are not in school with our children, we do not write policies and we don’t get to choose what gets into the classroom. Natalie has been true to her oath of office by not only informing her constituents and actively inviting parents to be part of the process, but by staying true to her conscience and responsibilities to God and country.

j. Bianco

I agree with Natalie Cline.

Natalie Cline represents the common people of Utah and our values.

s. gilbert

I STAND WITH NATALIE CLINE.

She is the only reason I’m OK with my kids still attending public schools at the moment. Because I know that Natalie will let me know what my rights are.

K. NAISBITT

I truly wish more board members had the courage Natalie Cline has and would stand and speak what they truly see, and not worry about the consequences. I wish they would speak their mind so I would have a better idea of who I want to vote for. Not speaking in sound bites, vague promises, or lies to those that vote them in. Natalie is willing to put her reputation, her school board positions, and everything on the line to stand up for what she believes is best. We need more people, not less, like her.

K. sCOTT

I support Natalie Cline.

Natalie is standing up [for] common sense and Constitutional values. Please help her defend our girls and our boys from the federal government busybodies and predators.

l. maher

As a parent of students in utah, I stand with Natalie Cline. She is protecting students and protecting parents’ rights of protecting our own children!

I am writing this email to let you know of my support for Natalie Cline. As far as I can see, she is the only board member who espouses my views and values…my wife and I stand firmly behind her.

B. Nygren

[Natalie] encourages parental participation in children’s education while the government continues to push aside parents and assume that role themselves.

E. Kotter

I would ask each of you to look at all the good Natalie has done on the state school board in looking out for the best interests of our children. I know Natalie personally and she has helped me in several situations in my children’s schools which I shared with her and one of them she resolved within an hour.

N. Nichols

We want you to know that we stand behind Natalie Cline 100%. She is doing all that she can to protect our children. She has the courage of her convictions which is a rare quality these days.

r. allen

II want to express my complete support for Natalie Cline. She represents my feelings about the role of education. I am grateful she is on the board. 

A good education brings confidence and leads to a meaningful life, which is what Natalie wants for our children.

Natalie! Great work! You keep making the news on behalf of Utah’s kids and the USBE keeps making news for harassing you ☹ Just thought you could use a note saying you’re doing great. Keep it up!

N. Domingo

I just want to thank you for continuing to fight the good fight. I know you have taken many attacks but your words and actions are so important. Thank you so much!!

E. Yorgasen

Thank you for your service! I know your job is not easy and we are grateful for your willingness to serve our children and to consistently put yourself out on the line for them! Thank you for standing up for our children like you do!!! I pray God bless you and your family greatly for all your efforts!
